IAGA Division III - Magnetospheric Phenonema

Division III of IAGA is focused on understanding how energy input from the sun and solar wind influence and drive Earth's magnetosphere and upper atmosphere. Research areas include magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling, the radiation belts, ring current and plasmasphere, and magnetospheric storms and substorms. How magnetospheric phenomena can be studied from the ground using magnetic field data is also included.
